Auditioning for Minnesota Boychoir

Every boy that auditions for the Boychoir will be placed in a choir appropriate to their level. The auditions are very low-key and easy. The director checks their range, plays some matching note games and then has the child sing Twinkle, Twinkle and Happy Birthday. Auditioning boys will also get a chance to answer questions about what they like to do, where they go to school, and other personal questions to make the process less stressful. Learn more here.

More About Minnesota Boychoir

The Minnesota Boychoir was formed in 1962 to teach boys between 7 and 18 the choral arts. The boys not only learn to sing at a professional level, they also learn easily overlooked but necessary skills for a successful adulthood. They learn how to stand tall, keep a schedule, take pride in their appearance, respect authority and continually strive for excellence. The goal of the Minnesota Boychoir is not only to produce outstanding musicians but also young men of character.

Boychoir Bootcamp - Summer Camps

The boychoir offers summer bootcamp for boys ages 6 to 12 who love to sing. Boys do not need to be part of the choir to take part in camps. Scholarships are available.  We share dates and prices in our annual summer camp guide.
